I have booked a site, but talking with the Awakeri camp owners, they have 109 sites, & they do not expect to be full that weekend . They indicated that rather than allocating a site no, they'll tell us where we can't camp, & we can select close to the pools & ablutions (convenient but some noise) or some where more distant.

All of the cabins & tourist flats are booked.

Have you booked your ferry tickets. And when do you need to be back for the return ferry?

I might be able to make it down for this.

I will however not be meeting at East Cape, more likely around Barryville/Pueroa Forest area. At a guess you guys will be 250km+ deep into the ride by then so I would expect you to pass through sometime between around 10-11am.

I plan on rocking the tent for this trip (important part of the low budget option), and plan to join the tenter's at Awakeri for sat night, and sunday night where-ever I end up.

Old cable fitted, bloody stiff compared to the one that broke, but better than no cable. Problem was the nipple that fits in the lever to hold the cable fell out when it broke so I had to make a new one.
Never straight forward !
It will do until a new one arrives

Filthy minded Mainland yobbo's. Here I am trying to have a technical conversation and all you can think about is sex
At this rate we will have to notify all the farmers along the route and get them to move the sheep away from the front paddock. You guys might get a bit home sick
